Let me tell you a little secret about myself. I am secretly 100 years old, technologically speaking. I have vivid memories of my teaching days where I often opted to use chalk on the chalkboard instead of the fancy projector for fear of all things electronic. (side note: I am married to a legit computer genius, so there is literally no excuse for this, but I digress!)
So, when I began to work with Honeybook earlier this year, I was IMMENSELY HESITANT. I called their customer representative and basically introduced myself as a grandmother who can barely turn on their computer. Several minutes later, I had a fancy new account with coordinated forms, automated emails, and MY OWN WIDGET. (Yes, I had to google what a widget was. Don't hate.) They are internet wizards and I cannot stop calling to check-in and basically have them life-coach me.
Now, when someone wants to commission an original painting, they can fill out a fancy little automated form on my website. Then, magically (that's the technical term for it, I assure you.) the information that they input, comes straight into my Honeybook account, where I can contact the client directly, send official emails, and streamline my entire life and business.
You might think I am being sarcastic. But please be assured that this has changed my life. I am currently weaning myself off of my insane (have you seen "A Beautiful Mind"?, yea it's like that) sticky-note and sharpie system and I feel really freaking good about it.
In 2017, I hope to automate other things. Like maybe I will make a grocery list on my phone and actually place said phone into my purse prior to shopping. A girl can dream! #lifegoals
Happy Monday, friends.
